Do you like magic tricks?
Hocus, pocus, BOOM! Parclick makes several car parks appear for you near the Église de la Madeleine (it is more useful than white rabbits anyway).
You will need a car park to park near this historic church in the 8th arrondissement, in the centre of the capital. Parking in Paris isn’t and has never been easy, especially in such a touristic area: the Place de la Concorde, the Champs-Elysées and several museums or theatres are nearby. However, by reserving your parking space, you will not have to go around in circles for hours, and you can choose your car park at the price you want.
And now, let's go for a little guided tour!
Built from 1763 and opened in 1842, the Église de la Madeleine is an unusual religious monument that looks more like a pagan temple than a Catholic church. Its neoclassical style earned it, unsurprisingly, to be classified a Historic Monument in 1915. It is located on the Place de la Madeleine, at the intersection of rue Tronchet, rue Royale, boulevard Malesherbes and boulevard de la Madeleine. Impressive from the outside and inside, it is 30 metres high and over 100 metres long.
And as the world is made well, you will find a metro station right on the square: Madeleine station, with lines 8, 12 and 14. This way, once your car is parked, you can travel the capital as you wish.
In this area you will find restaurants, shops, and then several venues such as the Olympia Bruno Coquatrix or the Mathurins Theatre. And we won’t give you a complete list of all the monuments around the church, because there is way, way too many: from the Louvre Museum to the Palais de l'Elysée via the Opéra Garnier, the least we can say is that you have choice!
And if you want to leave the capital: Gare Saint-Lazare is 500 metres away.
All this is easy to access by leaving your car in a parking lot in the centre of Paris, near the Église de la Madeleine. Tempting, isn’t it?
